Archives Committee

We maintain an Archives to prevent Alcoholics Anonymous’ original message of recovery from being distorted.

We have a duty to preserve the stories and artifacts so future generations may read the truth about our struggles and triumphs. Our history reminds of that one wonderful thing, gratitude. May we never forget where we came from.

The Archives Committee strictly adheres to the Twelve Traditions. We respect the anonymity of all members of Alcoholics Anonymous. We are always looking for A.A. volunteers. What a wonderful way to do service and give back to this fellowship that gave us all so much. We are looking for researchers, photographers, secretaries, typists, picture framers, file clerks, interviewers and much, much more. If you have the need to give back to Alcoholics Anonymous, the Archives Committee has a job for you.

The SIA Archives welcomes any contributions of Alcoholics Anonymous related memorabilia;old AA books, Grapevines, Suffolk Intergroup Bulletins, Suffolk County meetings lists or pre-1973 New York City meeting lists,convention programs, letters, photographs, or any artifacts connected with A.A. in Suffolk County.
